from: The Cynic's Breviary - Nicolas de Chamfort

We must needs have the power of uniting contrarieties:
love of virtue with indifference to public opinion,
taste for work with indifference to glory,
attention to health with indifference to life.

Nicolas de Chamfort (1741–1794) France
Translated by William G. Hutchison
